coempa (18) - Reeuwijk, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2013
Bottle from Beershop De Molen, @middle of a lake in the sun. Pours dark blonde with a medium, foamy frothhead. It’s hoppy and citric in the nose, smells pleasant. The aroma is that of citrus and grass, and a bit fruity and fresh. Even though this beer is low on alcohol, the taste that develops is complex, and very good. It’s balanced really well, the sweetness doesn’t overrule the bitternet, nor the other way around. The finish is only slightly hoppy, and a bit dry, but doesn’t last very long. It was a pleasant experience, although, in restrospect, I should’ve chilled it before I poured. Overall it’s a very enjoyable beer, perfect for a sunny day, as the alcohol doesn’t strike like a bomb. I’d certainly like to drink this more often.

IPA’ish blond beer. Has a nice balance between bitterness and fruitiness thanks to the New Zealand hops. Nice beer.

Bottled. Dark blonde with a medium head. Clean, hoppy nose, citrus, bread, sweet orange, some hay. Dry, earthy, grassy flavor, with citrus, bready malts. Lemony and decent. Like a regular Euro IPA.
